It's also been reported on multiple occasions on MLB Trade Rumors that they won't trade him.

I'm not so sure of that. The Phillies had the chance to dump his entire salary on the Dodgers last year and decided not to. I could see them making him available this July if they think they can get a pile of prospects for him, but if they don't get what they think is fair by eating a bunch of money they may just put him on waivers again in August and tell some team to take his entire salary.
